God’s swearing habit

Lately the Holy Spirit has been bringing to my attention how God has a habit of swearing. For about a week now, phrases from Scripture would come floating by my mind without me trying to think them up.  The one I am impressed with is from Hebrews where the...

Be made ready

Exo 1:11 And they put over them slavemasters in order to afflict them with their burdens. Maybe it is a little presumptuous of me, but what is happening to me, I believe is prophetic of what is happening to many in God’s camp. The people of Israel had lived...

Enmity Abolished

Jesus is a Peacemaker – Literally. He took Jew and Gentile into Himself when He hung upon the cross and made One New Man from the two. There is a war that has raged in the earth since the fall of mankind between Law and Grace. The two trees...

The purpose of the commandment

Yesterday we saw briefly that the Apostle Paul was given a commandment(epitage)from Jesus Himself to turn Gentiles from darkness to light through the preaching of the Gospel of grace. We saw that he goes on to tell Timothy, “to charge(paraggellō) some to preach no other doctrine”, and then says that “the purpose...

The Law is for sinners

In this passage Paul lays out many things against those who are going astray and he uses the words like: charge, commandment, law, lawfully, command. We are normally told that Paul is exhorting us to keep with the old testament commandments but it is the opposite that Paul is...

Has the Law been set aside?

Heb 7:18 For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment because of its weakness and unprofitableness, Heb 7:19 for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God. (NKJV) Heb...

Stop trying to be holy

If we  practice law living we point at ourselves with an accusing finger – not good enough – try harder! We cannot help but compare ourselves to others to see if we are keeping up appearances. The Devil laughs, for though we think we are getting more holy he...

Ages to come

Eph 2:6 And He raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Messiah Yeshua— Eph 2:7 to show in the olam ha-ba the measureless richness of His grace in kindness toward us in Messiah Yeshua. TLV I really like how this version translates the...

Let Jesus lift you up

For those who have felt the paralysing effect shame has upon the soul I offer this post. The son of Jonathan was Mephibosheth the grandson of King Saul who had tried for years to kill David. Mephibosheth means ‘Dispeller of Shame’. Not only does this boy’s name cover him in...

The lame shall leap like Naphtali

Why the Deer? While in a time of prayer on the 5th January 2016 the Lord revealed to me that I am descended from the tribe of Naphtali. Whether God means that I am physically descended or He is using it as some spiritual metaphor so that I will...

Don’t agree with the accuser

It is the Accusers job to accuse us- It is up to us to refuse to agree with him. The most ferocious battle you will ever encounter I believe, is against the “Accuser of the brethren”. “…for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before...

Whose report will you believe?

If you are a Christian then you have most likely heard the question in the Title before. Whose report will  you believe? It is taken from the story in Numbers 13 of the twelve spies Moses sent into Canaan to spy out the land. Ten of the twelve spies...
